Now that the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Open Beta has finally arrived, it is perhaps no surprise that many are wondering what the testing period's progression parameters are.

Modern Warfare 2 will soon feature a familiar Progression system that includes both Weapon Platform Progression and Rank (Player Level) Progression.

The Open Beta is said to offer a preview of the full game’s Progression and Challenge systems with Daily Challenges and a truncated Military Rank system, which unlocks everything in the test plus permanent limited-time rewards. Here are the level caps for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Open Beta.
